12 men serving on a jury, must decide, after hearing the trial and final arguments, on the life of a teenager who is being prosecuted for the murder of his father. It is a matter of life or death. In the locked jury room with such high stakes, people’s personalities and problems start emerging, sometimes threatening to overshadow the case itself. There are issues of personal grievance, of inability to fit into society, of arrogance and self-importance, of low self-esteem, of aggression — but ultimately idealism, integrity and in this one instance, justice, triumphs.
Written by Reginald Rose. Performed by Vikalp Mudgal, Dhruv Shetty, Mohit Chhabra and actors of the Akshara Theatre Repertory. Directed by Vikalp Mudgal.
